HOLMDEL, N.J. - The Holmdel Touchdown Club knows how to gamble. Throw the dice on how many men and women think they can win and watch the fundraising begin!

With a friendly crowd and an ace up their sleeve, the night continues a fun tradition for the organization. The event is a Texas Hold 'Em Fundraiser. Poker players, both amateur and the 'ringers' who stopped by, enjoyed delicious food from DeMarco's Catering. Of course, there was cold beer and wine that was donated by the Wine Academy Superstores.

The gambling was managed by professional dealers. A little help from Wikipedia tells us that Texas hold 'em is a variation of the card game of poker. Two cards, known as the hole cards, are dealt face down to each player, and then five community cards are dealt face up in three stages. The stages consist of a series of three cards, later an additional single card, and a final card. Each player seeks the best five card poker hand from any combination of the seven cards of the five community cards and their own two hole cards. (If a player's best five-card poker hand consists only of the five community cards and none of the player's hole cards, it is called "playing the board". If you play the board on the river, then you can do no better than tie the other player(s) in the game if no player can make a better hand than the board represents, using either or both hole cards.) Players have betting options to check, call, raise, or fold. Rounds of betting take place before the flop is dealt and after each subsequent deal.

If all of this sounds confusing, it isn't. You can check out you tube and be (nearly) a pro before your next fundraiser begins. It is a fun game and the people who played were clearly enjoying themselves. "I watched a couple videos and figured it out really quick" said one guest who refused to give his name since he lost (badly). "It was so much fun".

And the winners were:

Brian Coffaro 1st

Joe Hernando 2nd

Joe Hammer 3d

Sean Dowd 4th

Anthony Calcaterra  5th 

50/50 winner Anthony Calcaterra
